Presentation Description

From the often dazzling information graphics published by The New York Times to complex simulations created by scientists, the visual display of information has expanded exponentially in the last decade, as has the array of software applications designed to facilitate visualization for non-experts. The expanding field brings with it new demands for teaching the critical interpretation of this information, as well as a critical approach to the use of applications for rendering data in visual forms. This presentation offers an overview of specific forms of information visualization within a historical context, as well as very specific tools for teaching information visualization literacy.
